Apergosians

Humanoid species that lived on Apergos and called their leader the Apergosian High Leader. They had recently become warp-capable when the Cerritos was tasked with second contact. They were in the middle of an industrial revolution at the time, so everything was covered with soot on their planet. They also had a deep relationship with numbers, so choosing their Planetary Federation Communication Number was a more difficult task than expected.
